The Aspen Hill Club was the catalyst for a group of its members to eventually form a performing dance troupe dedicated to promoting an appreciation and celebration of world cultures through dance. What began as ballet classes at AHC, later evolved into a full-staged, performance dance troupe known as The Four Seasons Dancers. In its fifteenth year, the Four Seasons Dancers have impressed DC audiences with their complex choreography, colorful costumes and wide-ranging repertoire, with global influences that reach from Bollywood to Broadway, Israel to Ireland, Armenia to Uzbekistan and beyond, even to the Arctic.
The troupe’s artistic director-choreographer and AHC instructor, Elena Indrokova Jones graduated from a premier ballet school in her native Russia. She creates works in folk-inspired styles including gypsy, flamenco, polka, tarantella, mambo and more. The Four Seasons Dancers have participated in many community and corporate events and festivals including recent performances at the United Nations (NY), International Monetary Fund Spring Meetings (Washington, DC), Organization of American States (Washington, DC), The National Christmas Tree (Presidential Park, Washington, DC), Ike Leggett Legacy Forward Event (Strathmore Theatre, MD), International Festival (Bowie, MD), World Dance Showcase (PG County, MD), Bethesda Blues & Jazz Supper Club (Bethesda, MD), a benefit concert for hurricane victims of Puerto Rico and productions with Bel Cantanti Opera.
